How many times has Germany won the world?

Germany is one of the most successful international teams, having won four World Cups (1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014), three European Championships (1972, 1980, and 1996), and one Confederations Cup (2017).

They are also the only team to have won the World Cup while being ranked No. 1 by FIFA. They were the top-ranked team on all five of the FTF's rankings systems in 1954—the only year they were rated highest during the World Cup season.

Their latest victory came at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when they beat Argentina 2-1 after extra time. Lionel Messi had given the Argentines a first-half lead but Miroslav Klose scored an equalizer just before half time and then netted the winning goal with less than ten minutes left on the clock. That win ensured that Germany went into the final match as favorites. It was also their third consecutive World Cup title after Italy was declared the winner of 1934 and 1938 tournaments because of political issues surrounding those years' events.

Germany's all-time record is 88 victories, 24 losses, and 10 draws. They are the most successful national team in terms of matches played (116) and tied with Italy as the most successful team in terms of wins (88).

Has Germany ever won the World Cup?

The German national football team is one of the most successful national teams at the FIFA World Cup, having won four titles, four second-place finishes, four third-place finishes, and one fourth-place finish. They are also the only European country to have won the competition.

Germany's first world cup was in 1930 in Uruguay. They were eliminated by Argentina in the quarterfinals. In 1934 Germany returned to the tournament and this time they defeated all their opponents until they reached the final. But once again they fell short against Uruguay, this time in a 4-3 loss on goal difference. It was the only world cup finals that neither team scored a goal.

In 1938 Germany entered another world cup but this time it was canceled due to the fact that Europe was involved in another soccer war that prevented many players from traveling to South America for the game. So, no German team participated in this world cup.

After two years of inactivity, Germany went back to the world cup in 1950. This time they were not going to lose again to Uruguay, so they brought some new tactics to play against them. The Germans used a 3-5-2 formation and it really worked! They finished first in their group with three wins and one draw. But then they met Brazil in the semifinals and lost 1-4.

Who has won the Euro the most times?

They have also won the World Cup twice (1974 and 1990). France is second with two wins. Italy, Spain, and England each have one win.

In addition to their three victories at the European Championships, Germany has also won the world title in 1972 and 1990. France played in the final of the 1960 tournament but lost to Germany. It was also the case for the 1984 contest when France defeated England 2-1 after extra time before losing to Germany on penalties. The Netherlands also had one final appearance in 1992 but were beaten by Sweden who went on to claim the trophy.

Italy's sole victory came in 1964 when they beat Czechoslovakia 4-3 after extra time in the final in Paris. It was later revealed that Italy had used an ineligible player during the match. Spanish football legend Francisco "Paquito" Calatrava died in a car crash on his way to a UEFA Champions League match in Munich. He was only 39 years old. England's only victory at the European Championships came in 2000 when they beat France 3-1 in the final group stage match.
